jae offers practical advice and truly delicious recipes in her friendly, never-judgmental voice. This book is a breath of fresh, yummy air.
―Jessica Porter, author of The Hip Chicks Guide to Macrobiotics (Jessica Porter)
jae's debut book is an inspiring read. As an avid cook and foodie with an extremely nomadic lifestyle, finding balance through nutrition has been a challenge over the years, so I appreciate the depth of encyclopedic information this cookbook provides. Get It Ripe is a friendly nudge not only toward eating well and leading healthy lives, but also to supporting local farmers and being more responsible for the way we consume. Thanks for the book, jae! And for all the delicious treats youve graced our hungry dressing rooms with over the years.

Gutsy, intimate, refreshing, informative, nutritious and delicious―in Get It Ripe, jae has written the cookbook I have been wanting to recommend to patients for more than a decade. Thank you for compiling, with so much care and enthusiasm, an eating guide for a lifetime of good health―for us and for the planet.

Her enthusiasm for healthy eating is contagious. With her simple-to-follow and uncomplicated recipes, she creates dishes that will tempt vegans and omnivores alike. In this book, packed full of culinary tips for beginners and seasoned chefs, jae has gone well beyond the basics of vegan eating, affirming that we vegans never have to compromise on taste.

Get It Ripe is full of thought-provoking info on sustainable food, decoding grocery store labels, and holistic ideas on how to heal and balance our bodies through what we put in our mouths.

The book is not just for vegans, it's for anyone who wants to treat their body, the planet, and their taste buds good.

jae's inviting approach to whole foods is both pragmatic and uplifting. Get It Ripe offers big-picture broad stokes and meaningful details for delicious, nutritious food every day (regardless of one's dietary denomination!). If you love your body and the planet, this book is a sure thing.
― Renee Loux, author of EasyGreen Living, The Balanced Plate, and Living Cuisine (Renee Loux)
Much more than a vegan recipe book or lifestyle guide, Get It Ripe is a well-balanced healthy eating manual, hands-on cooking lesson, and cookbook all rolled into one.... Setting all preachiness aside, jae presents a fluid dietary model that takes inspiration from a wide breadth of approaches, providing straight-ahead guidance but ultimately leaving it up to the readers to make their own choices. And the eatin's pretty darn good too!
―Gayla Trail, author of You Grow Girl (Gayla Trail)
Toronto-based registered holistic nutritionist and author Steele has worked some magic in her attempt to teach the beginner vegetarian/vegan about the health benefits of the lifestyle with food that isnt bland.This isnt strictly a cookbook. The title says it all. Steele spends the first 100 pages of the book outlining what veganism means, from political motivations to the alternative health thinking behind it.
―Taste TO (Taste TO 2008-06-24)
Although Get It Ripe is touted as a cookbook, it reads as a very intelligent and unique approach to the vegan lifestyle..... [jae steele] educates the reader about the "whole picture" of veganism in a non-judgmental manner that is impressive, not to mention tasty!
―Organic Lifestyles (Organic Lifestyles 2008-07-01)
As much vegan primer as cookbook, Get It Ripe is a great starter book for anyone stumbling through those first months of life without dairy and meat. The author offers plenty of nutritional, prep and shopping information.

These recipes I have made so far and have all been great:
Get Up and Go Smoothie
Immune Boost Juice
Ginger Sesame Pasta Salad
Beet and Green Bean Toss
Mushroom Quinoa Pilaf
Pesto White Bean Bowl
I can't wait to try:
Carob Chai Cake with Cardamom Icing
Mocha Fudge Pudding Cake
Glazed Lemon Poppyseed Cake
Again, not living in North America, another thing I REALLY appreciate is that the recipes do not require exotic or difficult to find ingredients. If there is an ingredient that might not be readily available, there is always a substitution listed for it. Ms Steele, I could kiss you for that!!!
The recipes are easy, tasty, and healthy. Every recipe I have tried has been wonderful from the Good Shepherds Pie to the Maple Flax Cookies, this is an excellent find and a valued addition to my cookbooks.
I think this book is great for new vegans. It has helpful info and you will get started out right. This with Local Bounty would be all one needed at the beginning or maybe at all.
